What Is Homeopathic Medicine ?
Homeopathic Medicine is the coordination of scientific and natural of healing that has been in existence for over 200 years. It treats the whole person by using natural remedies that boost the body’s own ability to heal itself and correct any imbalances.
The homeopath seeks a substance which, in overdose, would mimic symptoms similar to those experienced by the sick person. When the match is made, that substance is given to the patient in minute, safe doses.
The man who pioneered homeopathic medicine is Dr Samuel Hahnemann. He was the first to notice that plant, animal and herb substances capable of causing disease in healthy people can be used in diluted form to treat people with similar symptoms.
Based on this observation, he developed a process of dilution to form homeopathic remedies. A plant substance is diluted with 99 parts distilled water or ethyl alcohol.
This process of dilution is repeated many times and is accompanied by a shaking procedure that imprints the energy signature of the plant on the water molecules.
The water retains a memory, or inscription of certain characteristics of the tincture.
It is this autograph that gets carried through and made more potent. As the plant molecules decrease with continued dilution, the traces of the plant disappear but the autograph gets stronger.
This makes the homeopathic remedy potent but completely non-toxic. My research has shown me that natural herbal remedies are not always safe, whereas homeopathic remedies are 100% safe. Homeopathic Doctors tell me that although some of the substances used to make homeopathic remedies are toxic in their undiluted state, once they have been diluted they are completely safe and have few side effects when administered correctly. They believe homeopathy can treat most conditions like illnesses such as recurring colds, chest infections, ear infections, tonsillitis, fever, diarrhea and vomiting.
Homeopathy is growing in awareness and usage around the world that is because conventional medicine should not necessarily be the first thing that one jumps at. There are gentler ways, and homeopathy is one of them.
